#TheRunningWriter QOTD

Love the hater.

*****

We see a lot of hate in the world don’t we? Haters, bullies, all around mean people.

Sometimes our instinct is to hate back. Maybe not outwardly, by physically hurting them, but our thoughts aren’t so nice about them.

I get it. Mean people are difficult to like—let alone love. I’ve been there. I was a pretty unloveable kid growing up. I leaned toward the bullying/aggressive personality as a youngster.

Thankfully, early on in my life, some key people looked past my rough demeanor and showed me a different path.

They loved the hater. And by them doing that I was changed. It’s so hard to love the hater, but they probably need the love and kindness the most.
